A loan of $550 helped to buy shoes, blouses, shirts, skirts, and trousers for her second business.


Anabel's story

Sra. Anabel is 41 years old, married, and the mother of two daughters (ages 18 and 26). She has been selling snacks for six years. Anabel, in her business, sells natural juices, tacos, enchiladas, roasted meats, and fried plantains. Her customers include everyone in the neighborhood who visits her in the afternoons.

Doña Anabel is requesting her second loan and is very pleased with the support she has received. She now wants to invest in a new business of selling clothes and shoes. Anabel will invest in the purchase of merchandise such as shoes, blouses, shirts, skirts, and trousers. She has already started this new business, so the help of this loan will increase the inventory of her business a bit more and eventually lead to more income. Her dream is to improve her sales and acquire more customers.
